I worked at a residential treatment center which specialized in eating disorders for 5 years. I believe that eating disorders are desperate attempts to cope with life and previous traumas. I help women specifically learn to build a healthy relationship with food, love their bodies, and learn how to use other coping skills that do not involve binging, purging, laxatives, and/or starvation. Through therapy, you'll heal past traumas and heal the relationship you have with your mind, body, and spirit.

I address eating disorders from an addiction point of view. Abstinence in eating disorders is about changing the relationship one has with food from something that is unhealthy to something that is healthy and life giving. 12 step programs or some other eating support group in the community is often advised to insure success. Body image is also covered when treating someone with an eating disorder.

Fleming, PhD provide relief first and foremost for the brain of one suffering from an eating disorder----without giving them medication.
